“Great Service!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I was part of a group of cyclists staying in town for four days but didn't cycle myself. Saskia arranged for our hotel and was really helpful with a bunch of group activities and also in giving advice for our touring outside of Girona. Will have to consider a return visit!

“Pro Experience”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

While planning a vacation from Canada to Spain, I managed to talk my wife into alllowing me to road ride in Girona. My subsequent internet searching and the rave reviews provided through Trip Advisor led me to 'Bike Breaks'. Over the next few weeks, I exchanged several e-mails with Dave and his staff inquiring about rentals, routes and the availability of a guide. Their responses were timely, detailed and put my mind at ease that I had made the right choice. Upon arriving at Bike Breaks, I was warmly received by one of Dave's staff (an Olympic Cyclist - cool!). Admittedly, I had left confirming my plans late and Dave had to scramble to find me a guide. He came through in spades by connecting me with a rider from one of the pro women's teams (GO LR!) and he fitted an all carbon Cannondale rental to my spec's. We hit the road the next day and had amazing 100K ride from Girona to Tossa De Mar on the spectacular Costa Brava. Having a pro guide ensured a quality ride and she provided some insight into the rigours of the pro tour while sharing her local knowledge along the way (bonus!). I now know why so many pro teams call Girona (and Bike Breaks) home. My experience with Bike Breaks was outstanding. As a result, the group I ride with is now contemplating changing our 2014 cycling trip from Italy to Girona. I should mention that over the few days I visited the store, it was evident that Dave, Saskia and Annie provide a high level of service to all ages / abilities (inc MB), and accommodate all requests to the best of their ability. They are a real asset to the cycling community. I look forward to returning next September.

“Great services and tour”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Big thanks to Dave and Sas at Bike Breaks!! We did the Medieval Village Day Trip and visited some stunning sites in a few small towns and villages just outside of Girona. The ride is a 27km easy ride with only a few short hills done at your own pace. The bikes and equipment are in good condition and the staff at Bike Breaks are very helpful. Highly recommend!

“seamless”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

booked cannondale carbon supers six's to go road cycling in the girona region for this years 'road trip'. This is an annual trip for our crowd and therefore we have a fair amount of experience hiring quality road cycles in europe. I would say this experience has easily been the best, the bikes were ready and sized correctly, no mechanicals and the service completely seamless, Dave, Saskia and their staff truly understand the concept of customer care and i couldn't recommend them highly enough.
Strongly advise you attend the thursday shop run if you can, we managed to meet several other cyclists who then joined us touring over the next few days as well as a good mix of 'celebrities',weight weanies and tarmac huggers!!...a great day!!
